Here is a pic of my Singer. It is a 15. Made in the 1950s. I bought it at a yard sale in 1980 for $25 and have been using it since. I love love my Singer.
yea, I finally got pictures uploaded. This is the quilt I posted that I made for my daughter to give to a friend. It is made out of fleece.
I was able to use one of my die sets to cut out block #21 of The Farmer's Wife (now sitting on my sewing machine waiting to be sewn together).
I was able to finish a small quilt that was made from purple scraps cut into 3.5 x 6.5 inch rectangles - not a large quilt, might need some borders.
Then, I moved onto cutting up some denim I have into 6.5 inch squares - am going to use 2.5 inch squares all the way around each of them to make a quilt.
So many projects,
A trip to Salem for a quilt show, via Dalles for fabric and another shop in Salem ... never did make it to the quilt show. We had a fun day anyway.
I was able to buy more fabric for a quilt I am going to make for my daughter - Twister - and my friend was able to purchase a back for a quilt she is making for her granddaughter.
A lot of driving and visiting.
I would like to quilt the front of my GD lap quilt differently from the back. It's a strip quilt on the front which I would stitch in the ditch. I want the otheside to look different. Would I use two pieces of batting and connect them when I bind it? I know this sounds like a silly question, but I'm just not for sure. I want this to turn out great. Thanks!

A few years back I bought a Pfaff Grand Quilter and the Next Generation quilting frame thinking I would quilt my own quilts. Wow what a learning curve. I have quilted 25 or more quilts but I never felt like they were very good. I just didn't have the control (or it seemed) and most everything was a simple meander. So one day I took my quilter off the frame and put it on the table and did a few table runners. It made a huge difference. They looked so much better and I decided to try quilts without
